Core ERNACT partner Derry City and Strabane District Council is currently participating in the Intelligent Cities Challenge, a European programme that will help the city with its strategic growth plan and digital transformation process. 

“Since last September, the city of Derry/Londonderry is actively part of the EU Intelligent Cities Challenge (ICC) project, working together with other 100 and more cities to face the challenges of today urban environments, from sustainability to skills passing by the citizens inclusiveness", explains Saverio Romeo, the Lead Expert appointed by the ICC programme to help Derry to achieve its objectives. 

According to Saverio, not all challenges can be faced at the same time. Therefore, "the Derry ICC Team has chosen to invest in the future of the city: in the youth, their skills and their will to thrive in Derry". However, Derry City and Strabane District Council won't walk alone in this journey. "The team wants to do that through collaboration with companies, educational institutions, other stakeholders, and working together with other cities". The Lead Expert reminds that it will be a long journey that will take us to November 2022. "We want to travel with you. Come and participate to the project city launch event on the 20th of January, learn about the project with representatives from the European Commission and the Mayor of Derry & Strabane, discover the fantastic initiatives already happening in the cities, learn about projects run in other European cities, and contribute to the discussion on which initiatives should be put in place for empowering young people skills in Derry."

Stay tuned, an agenda will be published soon!
Meanwhile, save the date and register here! 20th January, from 10:00 to 12.30
(Irish time).
